    For the past 7 years it has been by invitation of the boat owner. This
    year back to rental. Consider yourself invited. It would a real pleasure
    to have someone on board that thought cel nav was not a waste of time,
    and being an assistant cut into nap time. I'll try to let you know when
    in July the boys can fit some cruising into their schedule so you can
    book your flight from Germany far in advance and save a dollar or two ;-)

    Please check the start and finish time of the Sun observations. If I
    recall our arrival/your start time and sunset time, 4 hours of Sun was
    not possible.  We were also looking for Venus before sunset, and sadly
    about that time the horizon became very poor.
